Cooking program’s inspire

I love cooking program’s, and recently it has beenThe Great British Bake Off, and Master chef. I love them because they make me want to cook, and they make me feel I can give it a go. I have learnt from these program’s a few basic skills, so tonight I tried a pastry topped pie, with rosemary and thyme in rolled into it, and for my first attempt I am pretty proud of me!

Get cooking! Google has the basics if you don’t have a cook book!
I went for 175g plain flour, 175g butter, about 75ml of water, a big pinch of salt, and a few sprigs of rosemary and thyme, in the blender for a few minutes till it makes a dough, then in the fridge for about half an hour.
Make the pie filling (I just did spinach, chicken, shallots, a few chopped dried apricots).
Roll out the pastry, and keep folding it over on top and rolling out again to get lots of layers.
Pie filling in a pie dish, cut the pastry out to cover the top, paint with milk, sprinkle of cheese, and pop in the oven at 180 for 30 minutes.

I am sure this isn’t the best way, but it tasted good, was really easy, and there is a satisfaction of making something like this from scratch!
